I think (and this is kinda confirmed by what I've just been told on IRC) it
helps to think of tag --seal and --fix are a sort of "commit into other
tree" type thing.  You can do a tla commit --seal on your local tree, and
it'll seal the branch underlying that tree, or you can tla tag --seal src
dest to seal the dest branch.  But you can't seal a branch that doesn't
exist -- hence the problem of getting a base-0 when you asked for --seal on
a new branch.

Good sigmonster.  Maybe Arch is just mathematics.
